With a philosophy of comfort versus control, Ukeru provides training on key concepts — such as trauma-informed care and conflict resolution — as well as the physical techniques and tools that help manage challenging behavior.
By focusing on these concepts, Ukeru minimizes the need for restraint and seclusion,which are ineffective behavior modification techniques with potentially deadly consequences. Reducing and preventing their use has been proven to enhance quality of treatment and increase satisfaction for individuals in distress and those who care for them.
Named for the Japanese word for receive, Ukeru is a proven means not only to reduce the use of restraint, seclusion, and injury, but also lower workers’ compensation costs and employee turnover. Most importantly, it has been shown to help improve outcomes.
